To whom it may concern,
I am so excited to go see my sister, however, I am having a very hard time packing. Trying to fit all of my liquid toiletries in little 3 oz bottles all in a 1 quart bag is not easy. Luckily, Erin will bring shampoo and conditioner and lotion and all of that jazz for our Morocco travels; we only need to bring enough for Spain. I'm also having trouble with this carry-on/checked bag issue. I have been measuring suitcases and packing and unpacking and checking requirements online and I am very overwhelmed. If we carry it on, it needs to be 21" tall, by 7" deep, by 15" wide. Do you know how small that is?? My parents have several options, but the 21" one is 9.5" deep. The 22" one is 8" deep and the 24" one is 10 " deep. Even those don't meet the requirements. Although it can be 15" wide...all of them are only 12-13" wide. Can I take those extra inches and use them for the depth? Can I please bring my little rolly suitcase and my backpack on the airplane from Madrid to Morocco? Erin says you will lose it if I check it. I don't want that to happen. But I just saw online that I can only bring 1 carry on. But if we check bags, then we don't need to worry about the dimensions so carefully. Do you see my dilemma? Also, picking clothes to pack is hard. I just want to be done packing and on our way!
Try not to miss me too much. I will be back in blog land, hopefully with pictures of camels and monkeys, in a week and a half!
Morocco here we come!
